Fills on Objects

Not applicable

Hello - apologies if this is a silly question, I am new to Archicad and still learning.
I'm trying to get coloured fills shown on objects in all 2D views (plans, elevations and sections).
For example, pink for cabinetry like wardrobes, blue for plumbing like toilets and baths.
I am using a Multi-Basin Counter Object. In Object Settings, in 2D Representation and Surfaces, I have Fill Type set to Solid Fill and the coloured pen. In the little preview window, it shows the colour on the object in Plan View but on my Floor Plan it's still uncoloured.
If it's to do with Model View Options or Graphic Overrides, I can't find anything that would be controlling this. My wall colour fills are showing just fine, and the colour on the object is also showing correctly when cut in section.
Any help with this would be much appreciated - thanks.
